Tanzania seeks port developers for container terminal at Dar Es Salaam port

Tanzania Ports Authority (TPA) has launched a request for expressions of interest (RFEOI) to develop a new container terminal at Dar ES Salaam port through a PPP project.

The project aims to modernize the Dar es Salaam Port to be able to accommodate larger container vessels through the construction of new container terminal at Berths 13 and 14.

The project will be developed on a design, build, operation and transfer basis.

The shortlist criteria are:

  • firms' experience in similar assignment in port development and operations,
  • firms' capacity and
  • availability of managerial and technical staff for the assignment under international competitive bidding.

Interested parties must submit their expressions of interest on or before 23 September 2014. For more information: dps@tanzaniaports.com

The Dar es Salaam Port handles approximately 90 -95% of country's import and export volume and is the gateway to the Central and Northern parts of Tanzania and to the countries of Malawi, Zambia, Democratic Republic of Congo, Rwanda, Burundi and Uganda.

The port is the principal port serving Tanzania. According to the International Association of Ports and Harbors, it is the fourth largest port on the African continent's Indian Ocean coastline after Durban, Mombasa and Maputo.
